Review Of What The Bride Didn't Know By Kelly Hunter

Shh…it's a secret!

Special ops expert Trig Sinclair is a man's man, and that means he knows the cardinal rule of the bro code—no matter how dynamite Lena West is, as his best friend's younger sister, she's strictly off-limits!

But when a secret mission to Istanbul sees Lena and Trig pretending to be married (and sharing a bed!), he finds himself in a whole new world of sweet torture…. But if Trig thinks playing the honor-bound hero is tough, it's got nothing on how Lena feels when she discovers what her "groom" is really hiding…

I am a sucker for best friend romances. Maybe it’s because the idea of such a strong yet platonic relationship that grows into a romance strikes me as a good basis for a lasting relationship, or maybe it’s because the characters always seem perfect for each other. I’m not sure. What I am sure of however is that I really enjoyed this book.
 It is absolutely perfect if you want a light read with touching romance, thought out back-story and some 007 action. From the prologue, I adored the relationship between Trig and Lena. The sexual tension practically leapt of the page, while both characters remained totally oblivious. Lena’s oblivion comes from her insecurities.
   As a character, Lena is fantastically done. She is insecure due to being the ordinary one in a family of geniuses, and because of the scars she got from a mission gone wrong. Despite this, she is tough, independent and feisty, as well as being well aware of her flaws. In a way she’s someone most people can relate to, while also possessing the characteristics we aspire to.
  Trig is the perfect match for Lena, supportive, kind and understanding, as well as knowing her well enough to know when to back off.
  However, things don't really heat up until Lena loses her memory… And believes that her best friend is her husband. Then the chemistry is off the charts, as Trig tries to avoid intimacy until Lena regains her memory.
  The middle Eastern settings are vivid and beautiful, and Kelly Hunter’s writing is simple and enjoyable.
All in all I’d give it about 3 ½ out of 5
 Overall: Touching Read!
Genre: Romance
